Controlling bleeds during surgery
Developing an innovative surgical device for precise drug delivery
Dutch biotech start-up ProFibrix came to Team Consulting with a vial of powder that helps control bleeding during surgery, however they needed a way to deliver it safely and efficiently. We helped them develop a highly intuitive surgical device that delivers the fine, sticky powder with precision.
Following extensive research with leading surgeons and usability testing, this ground-breaking surgical device received regulatory approval in Europe and the US. As a result, the start-up was fully acquired for $240M.
The device needed intuitive fingertip control, as well as a range of detachable nozzles to allow multiple vials to be used within a procedure.
The project called for a flexible approach, as well as input from our broad network of experienced staff and suppliers, to meet the timelines required by this young start-up. It was an incredible milestone getting approval in both Europe and the US in 2015 and we're immensely proud of helping to develop what is now known as RaplixaSpray™.
